Detailed Product Description
Kentucky, The Cloister Press, 1943, 1st edition. 78 pp, illustrations. Small beige cloth hardcover with no dust jacket. Fine condition.

A good, if short, biography of the well-known mountaineering Episcopal priest and pastor of several churches, including Holy Trinity Church in Harlem. [Neate S168.]

The Rev. Nichols' mountaineering credentials are as impressive as his ecclesiastical ones: from 1881 a member of Appalachian Alpine Club. One of the founders and a president of the American Alpine Club. Founder of the Harvard Alpine Club.
 
For more than sixty years he climbed in the White Mountains, climbing Mount Washington over 250 times. Charles Wilcox's great work on the Selkirk Mountains of British Columbia devotes several pages to Nichols' account of being one of the first American climbers in those high and rugged mountains west of the Canadian Rockies. He ascended Mt. Fox in 1893. Introduction by Frederick C. Grant and Drawings by Carleton M. Winslow.
